Feeling a little disappointed with that Dr. Expert parenting book that everyone raved about it? Would you rather have a root canal sans novocaine than listen to yet another round of "well-meaning" advice from your mother-in-law? Does it seem like NOBODY on the planet has practical, useful (and non-annoying) suggestions to your parenting issues?
If you answered yes to any of the above, then let me introduce you to Parent Hacks, the holy grail of quick, helpful solutions for anyone raising children. Parent Hacks is a collaborative weblog that collects parents’ tips, recommendations, workarounds, and bits of wisdom and serves them up via their well-organized site. This is the stuff that got left out of the proverbial instruction manual. Topics include, but are certainly not limited to feeding, sleep, getting organized, bathtime, and my personal fave, pee/poop/potty. And if you have a hack of your own that other parents should know about, drop them an email and let them know.
Parent Hacks is like having a whole bunch of "been there" and "this worked for me" friends at your fingertips, without having to endure all their one-up kid stories. -Izzy
